Nien Nunb

We and the rest of the internet are all about The Force Awakens right now, but that doesn’t mean we’re just ignoring the rest of the Star Wars universe. After the jump:

  • This lightsaber is actually an elegant flask for a more civilized age.
  • Peek at the Star Wars Land float for this year’s Rose Parade.
  • See a cool piece of Han Solo-centric art by Tomer Hanuka.
  • Celebrate Life Day with the Lucasfilm holiday card maker.
  • This gingerbread Darth Vader looks terrifying and delicious.
  • Mark Hamill helps fans sort his real autographs from the fakes.
  • Donnie Yen is so psyched for Star Wars: Rogue One.
  • Could Nien Nunb return for Star Wars Episode VIII?
  • Why did Hayden Christensen disappear after Episode III?
  • Science says destroying the Death Star would’ve killed the Ewoks.

Let’s face it: lightsabers might look cool in the movies, but they wouldn’t be all that practical in our real world. You know what would be, though? A lightsaber-shaped flask. You know, in case that Han Solo blaster flask was just a bit too clumsy and random for you. Alas, neither seems to be available for sale at this time, but keep an eye out on IF Industries for more details.

Star Wars was everywhere this year, and that won’t change in 2016. In fact, Making Star Wars reports, the year will kick off with a Star Wars Land float at the annual Rose Parade in Pasadena. A few making-of photos show what’s in store both for the Rose Parade and for Star Wars land. Keep your eyes peeled for even more gorgeous detail when the parade kicks off January 1 at 8 AM Pacific.

Lucasfilm Holiday Card

Lucasfilm’s holiday cards are an annual tradition that go way, way back, but this year they’re making things up by letting you make your own. Sure, it’s a bit late for Christmas, but who can’t appreciate a slightly belated Life Day greeting? Delight your loved ones by creating your own online greeting card here.

Excited to show you my gingerbread #StarWars creation, Darth Vader, hope you like it:) #ForceAwakens #Gingerbread #GingerbreadDarthVader

Star Wars mania peaked right at the height of Christmas season this year, and one artist figured out a way to celebrate them both. Above, check out Caroline Eriksson‘s impressively detailed three-foot-tall gingerbread Darth Vader statue, which is now hanging out at the Ringen cinema in Oslo. Huffington Post has all the details on how she did it.

Mark Hamill knows there are a bunch of fake Mark Hamill signatures floating around out there, and he’s fed up. The actor took to Twitter to rant about the forgeries, sort the real autographs from the fakes, and show fans how to tell the difference. Not only did his epic authentication session prove, once again, that Hamill is a stand-up guy, it also demonstrated that he’s a very funny one. Some of the real signatures are pretty hilarious.
